MONTGOMERY — Court of Civil Appeals Judge Tommy Bryan defeated Calhoun County Circuit Judge Debra Jones for the Republican nomination for the Place 1 seat on the Supreme Court, while former Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore maintained his lead as he attempted to win his old job back.

Bryan had 67 percent of the vote to 33 percent for Jones, with 67 percent of the vote counted. There is no Democrat on the ballot in November.

With about 71 percent of the votes counted statewide, Moore had 51 percent, compared to 25 percent for incumbent Chief Justice Chuck Malone and 24 percent for Mobile County Circuit Judge and former Attorney General Charlie Graddick.

Moore can win the nomination without a runoff if he receives 50 percent, plus one vote.
